You know what... I don't know. I didn't hang near my car for questions. We were there for about an hour and a half, and there was almost always someone walking around it. So I'm guessing people were surprised seeing a G37 as a sport sedan with a 6MT, but that's just an assumption. Could be most were just mocking the trunk badge, LOL.

My mechanic of 10 years is becoming more and more withdrawn, and it's looking like I'm going to need another trusted shop. Anyway, TLSS seems like a top-notch operation. I was told they hold a Cars & Coffee once a month during the summer. Coffee, donuts, and maybe 50 cars all all types. Having coffee in hand to walk around with, that was nice. Seeing two huge racks of donuts show up... priceless.

It looks like TLSS primarily services BMW and Porsche. I went there with my car, and my friend's Tesla P100d. Curiously, his Tesla was mostly ignored, which was so weird, considering it was likely the fastest car there.

Oh, and I attended with the only Infiniti on the lot. The only one.

Looks like a very nice turnout you guys had there. I think my favorite is that 240Z.


Regarding the Tesla... I'm not really surprised it didn't get much attention unless you don't see them often by you. Out here they are all over the place and generally just get ignored. They are also very boring cars (to look at) so most gear heads don't give them much notice even though they are spectacularly fast. Nothing against your buddy, but amongst all of my car buddies I don't know anyone that would actually want to own a Tesla... unless of course you are looking for a very expensive and very fast family hauler. Even then I'd probably take the new E63 S AMG with its 603HP "biturbo" 4.0L V8 over a comparably priced Tesla Model S.
